I do not entirely agree with this. Speaking from an Ethical point of view and not necessarily a purely legal one. Just because something is in the Public Domain does not mean that you own the right to sell it as your own creation. Rather: you may sell it as part of a combined effort to raise funds for the Arts & Humanities ( various NGOs would be happy for that ) and to earn some capital from your efforts. But merely reproducing any created work not your own original creation and charging for it just because it is in the Public Domain sounds a bit deceptive. My free advice: make something ORIGINAL using material from Public Domain items...and be sure to be obvious about your sources whenever possible! I made " Invasion of The Space Potatos " on YouTube. Enjoy!

You are allowed to use a film in the Public Domain and dub it into the language of your country, or you may do a mashup or whatever you want to do. You just can NEVER by the Copyrights as they are not for sale! When someone rips a film out of the Archive and no longer shares it they are violating the Law.

Thanks.
